A local college group is teaming up with HyVee to raise money for AIDS victims
Truman students held a Zarda barbecue sale Saturday to support the growth of â??Care for Aids," a non profit organization, based in Kenya. The organization helps provide support to Kenyans with the AIDS virus.
â??Zarda has teamed up with HyVee to help us and we'll get 50% of the profit today. We're trying to bring in as many people as we can to find out more about our organization and allow people to get some barbecue as well,â?? said Kirsten Maakestad, Executive Director of Care for Aids at Truman State University.
Last year, Care for Aids raised about $24,000 to donate to AIDS victims.
The organization hopes this year's barbecue sends an invitation to the community to get more involved in the fight against AIDS.
